Shabby Chic Candle holder with BRAND NEW Prima products!

Hi all my dear blog readers.

It's only "a day" away to CHA opens, and it is time to share more of my works with BRAND NEW Prima goodies on! Today I will share a candle holder I made from an old Prima tin and a decorated candle. A "go green" project in shabby chic style!

Here it is, decorated candle and candle holder;

First I cut out the clear circle window on top of the lid to make room for the candle. Then I embossed the metal colored tin with white sea foam embossing powder. Then I distressed the edges with inks in black and rusty brown, very randomly, to create a rusty metal look. On the front I stamped with one of Prima's brand new stamps, and added a beautiful Vintage Trinket together with wax and some old clock gears.  I added lots of delicate Prima flowers on top of the tin, before placing the candle into the hole on the top of the lid.

And here some close-ups;

I rubbed some of Prima's new and amazing rub-ons directly to the candle. Both flowers and text. These rub-ons are in so high quality that it wasn't a hard job at all to add them on the candle, even though the candle actually is very slippery. The beautiful little key is also one of the new Vintage Trinkets from Prima.

And here you can see the distressed details on back of the tin.

New Prima products used on this project;
Cute as a button - Charmed # 547561 (vintage orange textile button)
Sugar Blooms - Celebrate #549008 (Purple Rose)
Vintage Trinkets - #930004 (key) and #930011 (crystal charm in front).
Clear Stamps - # 545000 (the design on front of the tin)
Rub-ons - Reflections #545260 (Butterflies), Melody #545253 ("Be Happy" text) and Botanical #545284 (plant motives on candle).

Hope you enjoyed my post today, and I wish to thank you all for dropping by!
